Synopses & Reviews
Deft, funny, knowing, compassionate and poetic. --John Updike in the New Yorker
Here it is, that infinitely distinguished thing, a dead writer so full of charm and derring-do that literature's canon makers should sit back, smile and say, Dawn Powell, where have you been all our lives?" (New York Times). This omnibus includes the two novels Powell considered her best, Dance Night, the first of her so-called "Ohio novels", and Turn, Magic Wheel, a satire on the New York literary scene, along with a selection of her best short fiction.
